Context menu image viewer for x64?

Post by Anomalous » Sat Dec 24, 2005 5:51 am

Can anyone out there point me to a context-menu image viewer for Windows XP x64 edition?

Every existing solution I can find is a "legacy" win32 application, which will not work with x64's native 64-bit Windows Explorer. There is a 32-bit Explorer on the machine, but it is not the native Explorer that runs when My Computer is double-clicked.

I'll try to make a 64bits soon

What about a full Windows x64 compilation of XnView?
Would it be feasible? I mean it would be as easy as recompiling, or there should be lots of portability errors in the source?

Hope you will be able to fix it shortly.

XnView would benefict a lot being x64 in speed, and image size terms.

How's the x64 part going?

I had a few days with the newest version of xnview on my xp32 version before it collapsed and I had to boot the xp64 instead, and in those few days I managed to fall desperatly in love with the context menu....

I really really miss it. Please help! :D
